I did not claim to have a right to attend a conference.

If someone, man or woman, would report sexual harassment in Denmark, it would be done to the police, who would take proper actions. Actually, I explicitly do not want the conference staff to act like a conference police. Keep in mind that if they throw someone out of a conference because of harassment which proves wrong later - this persons image will be forever destroyed in the community.

I'm not talking about PyCon, it was mentioned that this applies to anything sponsored by PSF (correct me, if I'm wrong).

I don't personally know who organizes every event I attend, I attend events because I think the subject is interesting or because people I find interesting attends or speaks.

I agree harassment is underreported but there have been issues with fake reports in the media as well.

It's rather telling that you relate to and sympathize more with the perpetrators than the victims of sexual harassment. Something to consider.


I think you just won the tasteless comment on hackernews award.


Explain, please.
